Default Does anyone have a good bread recipe?



Advertise Here

I've been reading and going to Honeyville's blog and seen Tess make bread using hard white wheat. I haven't cracked open my wheat yet, have to decide on grain mill. But I love my bread recipe with my all purpose flour. Can I use hard white wheat as my flour in that recipe? I don't know. Just wondering if anyone had a good easy recipe using the hard white wheat. I won't always have all purpose flour around I guess. As soon as I decide on jr. mill grinder from country living 219.00 or augason farms 60.00, I can start trying some out. Thanks alot.

From my research the only difference between red wheat and hard white wheat is the gene that makes the wheat red is missing .As a result it produces a little sweeter bread.

i have been using the no need method for a long time now
but only in the last few months have i done it consistently
every day or two I make a batch of dough


2 cups flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp yeast
and the appropriate amount of water

I mix the dough until it is all incorporated
then i cover it and let it sit overnight.
The next morning I divided it into 1 loaf (put in in a pan and let it rise a little more)
and then a dough ball for pizza or other items.


The truth is i eyeball everything but the flour.
when i am mixing it with my hand i generally go by the texture if i need more water or flour.
It is definitely something i advise people to practice.
Making a lot of dishes by memory - especially baked goods - is very valuable skill.



I bought this for $12 from Walmart one day,
I didn't dream that it would become my most used item
It is the perfect dough bucket.
It is always on my counter with dough in it.

I would have to say that the basic French bread recipe is the most versatile.
It requires eight minutes of kneading, and two 45 minute raises, but it makes great regular pan loaves, french loaves, baguettes, diner rolls, cinnamon raisin bread, or cinnamon rolls.

And it doesn't require anything except bread flour, yeast, salt, and water.

I am making bread right now, so I will give you my tried and true
bread recipe...

6 cups flour

2 1/2- 3 cups water

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup oil

1 tblsp salt

1 egg for egg washing crust

4 tlsp yeast in 1/4 cup warm water with 2 tblsp brown sugar

This is a pretty flexible recipe. you can play with the amount of sugar,

and the type of oil, too. I use olive oil, and I use brown sugar..

I will make whole wheat, 4 cups whole wheat 2 cups white, and maybe 1/2

gluten flour to make it " chewy" bread. I recently started using robin hood

bread flour, and it does make nicer bread, but good ol' all purpose makes

fine bread.. I am making buns today with dill seed, sesame seed, poppy

seed, and grated old cheddar cheese as toppings.

i let it rise twice; an hour each rise, then pan and let rise another hour while

the oven heats up to 425 degrees. about 10-12 minutes for buns, 15- 20

for loaves in bread pans.. Always proof your yeast first, and then go nuts!!

Experiment with adding onions, or garlic or cheese into the bread dough..

Whatever does'nt work gets put on a wire out the kitchen window for

the chickadees.. I'll post some photos as I go today..

This is an incredibly easy recipe for Focaccia (Italian Flat Bread).
I have made it several times and it tastes great.

These other recipes are equally easy and delicious.
I think the flat breads are best suited for survival situations.
This link is to video recipes of their breads.

Hi all,

Here is a sweet potato bread I made for Thanksgiving. If you make it, I would suggest upping the spices in it.

Hope you all don't mind, but I'm "bumping" this thread to bookmark it. Just very recently been baking and this thread looks to be fascinating!

Been making this bread for years now. I dont us white death, white flour at all. Also replace the pot with good old cast iron pot. 500 degrees with the pot in the oven. Just till up to temp. Then throw in the dough. Usually use 4 times the recipe so it fills up the cast Iron pot. 45 minutes with lid on. 15 with lid off. So easy. Hard to go wrong. You can also use bread loaves. I bought cast iron ones. I like them way more and the bread cooks better. So easy. Usually use spelt or quinoa flour. We grind the grain just before we make the bread. Seldom buy ground flour. I also add sunflower seeds etc. Amazing bread.

Wow, seeing everyone's pics of their dough makes mine look so tiny! Time to greatly increase the ingredients in my recipe! I need to be making enough to last a couple days, but it never lasts long when i make it. We all love it, and my 3 yr old eats it up as fast as I can butter it! I like the idea of using cast iron to cook the bread, think it would work fine in a cast iron skillet tho? I don't have any of the pots yet...just numerous sizes of skillets.
